Create a room type

A room type contains a room's physical characteristics, such as its size, the amenities it offers, and how many of its type exist at the property. Use /ota/OTA_HotelInvNotif to create room types.

Before you start

This example shows how to create a basic double room. If you're working with an independent property (such as a holiday home or apartment), you may need to create a multi-bedroom setup instead.

To complete this task, you need:


HTTP request


Request body


MaximumOccupancy refers to the maximum number of guests allowed to stay in the room. You can only add numbers up to 99, which is the maximum value for MaximumOccupancy.

Provide an OTA_HotelInvNotifRQ object in the request body. Example:

<OTA_HotelInvNotifRQ xmlns="" xmlns:xsi="" xsi:schemaLocation="" version="6.000" id="OTA2014B" TransactionIdentifier="5" Target="Production">
    <SellableProducts HotelCode="{PropertyID}">
        <SellableProduct InvStatusType="Initial">
                <Occupancy MaxOccupancy="2" MaxAdultOccupancy="2" MaxChildOccupancy="1"/>
                <Quantities MaximumAdditionalGuests="1" MaxCribs="1" MaxRollaways="0">
                <Room NonSmoking="1" RoomType="Double" SizeMeasurement="16" />
                      <Amenity AmenityCode="61"/>
                      <Amenity AmenityCode="69" Value="1"/>
                      <Amenity AmenityCode="33" Value="2"/>
                <RoomLocation RoomLocationCode="2">
                            <Floor Number="4" />
                            <Floor Number="7" />
                            <Floor Number="9" />
                    <Text>Deluxe Double Room with Sea View</Text>
                    <!-- We recommended uploading at least 4 room photos (2048x1536px, landscape) -->


The response contains an OTA_HotelInvNotifRS object:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<OTA_HotelInvNotifRS xmlns="" xmlns:xsi="" xsi:schemaLocation=" OTA_HotelInvNotifRS.xsd" TimeStamp="2019-07-31T13:46:52-00:00" Target="Production" Version="3.000">
        <InventoryCrossRef ResponseInvCode="{RoomTypeID}" />
    <Success />
